    • The Ship – who will you be?
      The Ship For years I was hearing an increasing murmur and rumours about some kind of problem with the ship. Finally I decided to take a closer look, went up to deck, leaned out and looked down, and…. oh sh*t…. this ship is sinking! It’s tilting, some cabins are already flooded, with people frantically crowding […]
    • Trading control for great products – the Telia TV team example
      Adapting to accelerating change In a world where the speed of change seems to accelerate almost exponentially, it is only natural that an organization’s way of working must be constantly challenged and improved – especially in the highly competitive media business.

    • Group Vs team

But each one is really happy as the are achieving something. This is […]

    • On the Essence of Business Analysis
      I recently had the opportunity to talk shop with Dave Saboe, who runs the Mastering Business Analysis website and accompanying podcast. The topic of our conversation was the "essence" or underlying "why" of business analysis, and how focusing on that "essence" or "why" can benefit the individual analyst, and the organization as a whole.

      From the time product management has been around, there is a notion that to be effective, product managers should behave like CEOs for their product. A belief that the successful product managers have the power to make decisions for their product like CEOs do for a company. Others can provide all the input they want, but the final decision […]

    • “Can we come visit you?”
      One of the most powerful tools for understanding your customers is to talk to them where they live, act, work: the on-site visit. Unfortunately, site visits can feel so daunting that many companies don’t even try.  How do you coordinate dates and schedules? What do you have to do to set up? Why would anyone […]
